Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible (1706-1721) is well-known and well-loved, and has been translated to Arabic in the past century (1900s) by our beloved Coptic Priest Reverand Hegomen Father Markos Dawoud (originally by the name of Hafez Dawood), and we'll try to add them here at St-Takla.org later God willing. His commentary is aimed primarily at explanation and edification, as opposed to textual research. Comprehensive, this commentary provides instruction and encouragement throughout. Each volume of the commentary comes with its own introduction (available below), helpfully situating it for the reader. Although written in an older style, Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible is worth studying and is useful for pastors, theologians, and students of the Bible (*).
You can also find at the same page of each chapter links to read the current Chapter text (now from the KJV), along with links to other commentaries and interpretations (if any) to the same chapter (by other writers).
If you found anything against the Orthodox faith in any of these books, please inform us, so we make a note of that, and add the correct Orthodox point of view.
